Symbolic Tornadoes?

Just think it's funny that the 3 towns, located in a triangular pattern where 3 tornadoes touched down "almost" simulataneously on Monday, are named "Boardman," "Council" and "Hallsboro." Maybe North Carolina needs to get its political thinking cap straightened out.

Isn't it cute how a

Isn't it cute how a governmental agency miles away must confirm what dozens of us actually saw?

As you know, it's not "official" until some government bureaucrat says it is. :)
